americans are looking at the romney ryan ticket as one that will address issues and will deliver a plan that has impact on middle class americans, that will bring down taxes for all americans. period. there's only one candidate that's actually talking about raising taxes and there's another candidate, the romney ryan ticket, that will cut taxes for all americans. so i think as we go into this, we'll hear a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase f that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we hear

don't be distracted. the prop is that the romney campaign's big message have been counterproductive. they should be talking about jobs and employment. they spend a lot f time talking about the ryan plan, medicare and medicaid. talking about lyme disease is a big improvement over a day spent talking about taking medicare away from people. >> that is the faintest craze of a political campaign you're going to hear. it's not -- at a moment when mitt romney is losing, it does not strike me that that's that's going to turn it around. >> we're going to be finding out what they are focused on. up next, a shocking admission from apple. truly shocking from this company and today, new details released in the massacre at the colorado movie theatre in aurora. why the man accused of the murders was banned from his college campus well before the incident. get two times the points on travel, with chase sapphire preferred. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really good. yes!
